Job description

A vacancy has arisen for the post of Residential Support Manager within the Student Experience Division of the University of Sussex.  The post holder will be a member of the Campus & Residential Support management team, providing pastoral care and out of hours support to students in University managed accommodation. 

Due to the nature of the post, the post holder will be required to be part of an out-of-hours duty rota as there will be a requirement to follow up potential welfare issues, advise on or attend any urgent incidents that may occur.  A flexible approach to work patterns is therefore essential. For the better performance of their duties, the successful applicant will be required to live in on-campus University managed accommodation in a self-contained property.

The person we are looking for should have a sincere interest and understanding of the needs of students, and be able to communicate effectively with residents, university staff and external bodies both orally and in writing.

If you would like an informal conversation about the role, please contact Wendy Tozer who can arrange for you to speak with a member of the team
